Anyway! Back to earlier this week...ever since I've known my fiancé he's had the cute little boy haircut. I'm talking the George Clooney, mid-90s, boyish haircut...something like this.
There's nothing wrong with that. However, I've noticed that he's had the exact same haircut since he was about....oh, nine. I've seen little kid pics and they're all the same. The hair has gotten progressively shorter over time, but the virtual look is the same. And he REFUSES to put product in it. No gel, no balm, no spritz, no hairspray, no nothing. A few months ago I tried to persuade him to try a little spikeyness (I know, that's not a word) or at least pushing the front bangs up...or just something. Something to make him look like the 28-year-old he is. All of this to no avail. Nope, nope, nope. He's very stubborn and I just figured, "oh well, I tried."
David gets his hair cut by the same guy EVERY TIME. He's been going to this same guy for years and years and refuses to alter either the barber or style of cut. Weeeelllllll, earlier this week the barber was out, but the girl that works in the same shop (for the barber/owner) was there and she cut David's hair. Yeaaaa...have I mentioned that David isn't very vocal in public and just kinda goes with the flow? Afterwards, he came over with his hair looking something like this.
Completely and totally freaked me out. I don't need to tell you that David didn't like it either. It even freaked me out when he leaned in to kiss me...this person just wasn't the same!! So...I learned via personal experience that the old saying, "Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it" is very, very, very true. I love my fiancé exactly the way he is. Please don't change! Not even a little! Not even your hair! Though...I am glad that his sister and I were able to get him in some non-straight-leg jeans this summer. But, that might be as far and experimental as we need to go...
